Aaron Olson, Sales Director at Rice Home Medical, has been presented the Patriot Award from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support an employee serving in the National Guard or Reserve through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed.
Ryan Heidelberger, Regional Account Representative at the Alexandria Rice Home Medical branch and member of HHC 1/34th Armored Brigade Combat Team of the Minnesota National Guard, nominated Olson for the support he has shown Heidelberger throughout the course of his employment at Rice Home Medical and his involvement in the National Guard.
“Employers like Aaron make it possible for Soldiers in the Minnesota National Guard to perform at the highest level,” Heidelberger stated. “This was an opportunity to recognize Aaron and to personally thank him for his continued support of my service.”
Olson was presented the award from ESGR Representative and former 34th Infantry Division Command Sergeant Major Retired (CSM), Ron Muehlbauer on Wednesday, February 19th at the Rice Home Medical branch in Willmar.
